Dachstein West

Dachstein West Overview

Dachstein West offers skiing up to 1620 metres and is known for its great views and hospitality. The pistes are wide and snow-sure with a modern lift system, and are especially suited to beginner and intermediate skiers. The resort has a friendly, family atmosphere and plenty of the famous Austrian charm which brings schools back to the country year on year. Skiing in the low mountain ranges offers protection from the wind, while skiers also enjoy an impressive mountain panorama of the higher nearby mountains. There is no shortage to keep your students entertained in the evenings with swimming, ice skating, climbing wall and pizza night. Well recommended for your next school ski trip to Austria.
